Her goal: to become a world-renowned biomedical engineer working with scientific societies to improve the role of women in scientific fields and the way scientists and engineers integrate people and society into their work. By 1979, this goal had become a reality.

In her memoirs, acclaimed biomedical engineer Monique Frize recalls the events in her life that taught her to overcome obstacles, become more resilient, recognize the importance of mentors and role models, and remain focused on the future. She also speaks of her appreciation of the critical role played by family and friends in maintaining the strength and determination required to succeed. And, above all, to succeed in a man's world.

Frize fondly remembers her youth in Montreal and in Ottawa, and her marked interest for math and science. Her entry into the world of engineering was both romantic-she met her husband-and tragic. She faced prejudice and stereotypes, which she ultimately overcame. She reconciled family and work life, pursuing a challenging and rewarding international career in a very specialized field at a time when this was still very uncommon for a woman. And she relives the tragic Polytechnique massacre.

These memoirs are sure to inspire young women who have a dream, and more specifically those who wish to enter sciences and engineering.

This book is published in English.

Son objectif : devenir une ingenieure biomedicale de renommee internationale en travaillant avec les societes scientifiques pour ameliorer le role des femmes dans les domaines scientifiques et les moyens par lesquels les scientifiques et les ingenieures integrent les gens et la societe a leur travail. En 1979, elle avait atteint cet objectif.

Dans ses memoires, l'ingenieure biomedicale saluee Monique Frize se rememore les evenements de sa vie qui lui ont appris a surmonter les obstacles, a devenir plus resiliente, a reconnaitre l'importance des mentors et des modeles de roles, a rester rivee sur l'avenir et a reconnaitre le role essentiel que jouent la famille et les amis dans le maintien de la force et de la determination necessaires au succes. Mais aussi a reussir dans un univers masculin.

Frize se rememore affectueusement sa jeunesse a Montreal et a Ottawa, notamment son interet marque pour les mathematiques et les sciences. Son entree dans le monde de l'ingenierie etait tout aussi romantique - elle y a rencontre son mari - que tragique. Elle a du confronter des prejuges et des stereotypes, qu'elle a finalement vaincus. Elle a concilie famille et travail pour mener une carriere internationale gratifiante dans un champ tres specialise a une epoque ou les femmes avaient tres peu de place. Et elle revit le massacre tragique de la Polytechnique.

Ces memoires sauront inspirer les jeunes femmes qui ont un reve, et plus particulierement celles qui souhaitent percer en sciences et en genie.

Ce livre est publie en anglais.
